Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

새해 복 많이 받으세요 !!! ^^ Happy New year (again), today marks the start of the Lunar New Year and the year of the Dragon which apparently is the most powerful creature out of them all in the Chinese sodiac... And moreover it's supposedly known or believed that babies born in the year of the dragon are more fortunate in life then those children born in the year of the sheep... A Chinese babyboom ahead soon, perhaps...

Which would mean that Japan, Korean and other Asian countries might see more children being born... And as for Cina at least many women do want more then one child so maybe it's the same for Korean women too...

I know many people way Chinese New Year, but I like the English expression Lunar New Year far more better since the Asian New Year is celebrated according to the Lunar calendar and does not really place that big a deal on China. And no Korean's doesn't like China or Japan that much based on historic happenings which has had a big influence and impact on Korea.

If you believe the Mayan calendar maybe you fear that the 21st December will be the end of the world, and of life as we know it... Or could it be that the upcoming year 2013 will look completely different, would it even be the start of the 6th discourse ?
